Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
F.Tanisha Hopkins goes by the name "Tiny" but reinvents herself as "Shanoah." She hooks up with drug dealer Roscoe, who's married to Infinity, but he sexes up Shanoah on practically every other page. Roscoe has no use for Viagra as the sex gets more raw each time he feels the urge-which is several times a day. To beat the crack monkey on her back, Shanoah relies on best friend Frenchy, a transgendered female. But Frenchy has her own issues, including a secret past connecting her to Roscoe.VERDICT This is street lit stripped down to its bare essentials: betrayal, violence against women, and the horror of crack addiction. Hall's bio tells readers she's currently incarcerated, and her from-the-heart writing certainly conveys the harsh reality of crack addiction and being arrested. Although the novel's time line is jumbled and its prose unpolished, fans of true street lit will flock to this hard-hitting title that's well worth the cover price. — "The Word on Street Lit", Booksmack! 1/20/11
